Just a small town gal and that is all I'll ever be,
where life is just another iced sweet tea away,
where you can see the twinkling stars at night,
the wonders of the moon,
and puffy white clouds floating across the blue sky.
Welcome to my blog from the heartland, full of random musings, observations, reflections, things I love, events in my life, humor..

"May Day! First day of May always conjures up a childhood memory.....picking peonies, irises, roses, from Mom's flower garden...filling our homemade construction paper baskets.....hanging them on the doorknobs of our neighbors....
ringing doorbell.....dashing away so it would be a mystery as to who left the flowers....(somehow they always seemed

As we were leaving the local cafe after enjoying breakfast night Thursday evening, a friend asked if I had seen his latest addition. Said, 'nope haven't. Well, hold on. Guess better find out what it is first. Maybe I have seen it.' No, I had not seen the Watusi cow that he had recently bought.

Before heading home we decided to drive by to see it. The s...

Life slows down when porch sittin'
Rejuvenates one's soul
Sit a spell in a rocker, a chair,
Porch swing, or on the stoop
Enjoy the view
Watch children play
Reminisce about the good old days
Telling tales and visiting
Sweet tea sippin'
Relax and unwind
Leave your cares behind

Cup of coffee and sun rises
Star gaze and night skie

At the End of day....
"As nightfall commences at the end of this December day
There is quiet beauty and comfort to behold
As one takes an eventide stroll
Streetlights awaken, shining brightly like twinkling stars
Casting a warm glow on the street below
In this rural town
Where I hang my hat an

Fall Days
By "Home is where the heart is..."
November 18, 2016
It's fall days like this.....
With a chill in the air
Anticipating the first frost
Bright yellow, red and bronze foliage
Gently floating, dancing in the breeze
Creating a magic carpet of colorful jewels
That we are grateful for a life full of autumns
 
Savoring this annual rite of passage
Before the wonderland of winter's beauty begins
